💻 Work Experience
(June 2019 - Present) | Stockholm University
Research area in the intersection of machine learning and immersive technologies. The aim of the project is to gain understanding on how behavioral data (physiology, motion, interactions) from users can be analyzed with machine learning methods to infer subjective characteristics form from users (skill level, emotional states) and inform the design of better adaptive virtual reality applications.
(June 2018 - Present) | PortalSense
Created a startup in Colombia that develops interactive architectural visualization for VR headsets. Check PortalSense for more details (in Spanish).
Consultant and Developer
